The New American Religious Spirit
Written By Jim Searcy

Dear Friends -
Real true Christians are unpopular folks today. I mean by that, anyone who takes SERIOUSLY biblical truth and biblical principles, will find himself reviled. If we dare speak the truth in the midst of today's national crisis, you will need boiler plate rhinoceros hide.

America has all of a sudden gotten very religious. Great ecumenical prayer meetings where all gods and all faiths are welcome are in vogue. People who hadn't said "God," except in profanity, for years, are all of a sudden getting religious.
The WTC 9-11 has turned things upside-down in many ways. Woe to those who think this new religiosity is a reason for rejoicing for Christians. You MUST understand that it most surely is not.

You may hear Christian hymns being sung, and church attendance may be up. We better understand how even this is not good.
Why would I say such things? Because there is no such thing as "partial Christianity". There is no Christianity that does not speak of repentance from sin.

The new religious spirit of America has two basic foundations: 1) There is one god, unknown, who may be called by any religious names, who has revealed absolutely nothing of objective value, regarding His will, regarding worship, or human behavior. 2) This god has no wrath; knows nothing of sin or judgment. Also anyone who dares to say that God would punish a person, or a nation, is a glowing heretic to the new American religious sprit.
Even though the pope fully approves the two basic foundations. Even though the pope tells us Islam's god is the same as the God of the Christians. Even if the pope kisses the Koran. Even though the pope tells us to pray to Mary like he does. The problem is easily seen: Christians believe, that there is one true God, and not even the pope can say otherwise.

This terrorizes the new American religious spirit controlled masses. Read the first few verses of John 16. Just read down to Al Gores favorite verse John 16:3. This war on terrorism is War on the Saints. Why? Phil 1:28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

Our God went to great lengths to explain and show the difference between Himself from all the gods of the peoples and religions. God Almighty makes it perfectly clear and proclaimed: He seeks true worship. True worship is based upon a knowledge of who He really is. True worship is based upon His revelation to man. He does not grant to man the freedom to worship Him in a manner that pleases the creature rather than the Creator. God is particular about His worship. His worship is based absolutely upon truth that He revealed. Without truth, there is no worship of the Christian God.

Truth revealed by the Christian God is found in The KJV Holy Bible. The truth that the one True God has revealed is without question, when it comes to the matter of His law, sin, rebellion, punishment, wrath, and judgment.

How can so called "evangelicals" be so quick to jump on the American religious spirit bandwagon? Even so called "evangelicals" say "we will never talk about sin, or punishment, or wrath." The remnant is FEW who will cry out against this foolishness. Real Christians cannot withhold the truth about sin and judgment, out of fear of man's opinions. That is precisely what makes the Cross of Jesus Christ of no effect. In the American religious spirit there is no Cross. There is no sacrifice, where there is no sin. The religious spirit has no offense that demands forgiveness, to be found through His perfect sacrifice!

Not to speak of sin and judgment to "win" a person over, is unfaithfulness to the gospel itself! To what has such a person been won over? Where is the gospel when there is no sin to be forgiven at Calvary?
But it is right here that the new American religious spirit stops its ears and refuses to hear.

America wants God's blessing. We want God to be near us. We want Him to protect us from the horror. We want Him to guide our military and allow us to flex our muscle and launch our missiles with impunity. We want a blessing God, a caring God, who simply panders to our wants and desires. We want a god to gratify our lusts. This is the "God" of the American religious spirit.
But what America does not want is a God who is holy, who is just, and who has revealed His will concerning how we, His creatures, are to live. America is covered with the innocent blood of abortions. We glory in violence. We are so selfish, so bound in covetousness, greed, fornication, and sexual lust. The religious spirit of America will rationalize the murder our own offspring.

Lighting candles with blood stained hands and selfish unrepentant hearts will not move the One True Living Almighty God. Almighty God does not move because political and religious hypocrites sing "God Bless America."
Here are some words of God we should HEAR from real Christian men of God:

Phil 1:28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
AND

Prov 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Prov 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; Prov 1:25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: Prov 1:26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; Prov 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Prov 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: Prov 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: Prov 1:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Prov 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

The religion of pseudo science, and vain philosophy, and evolution are American government policy. There is no creator, we are told, to express His law for us in the first place. That is the government policy of the new American religious spirit. God and His law are not allowed in courtrooms, our school rooms, or any public institution. God's Royal Law is not even found in the Chruches, for we are under grace, don't you know? If God says it is wrong, the new American spirit in the government AND the churches celebrate it. Every form of sexual perversion is found in the land. The mass media exalt fornication and adultery. Homosexuality is not only turned into an acceptable "lifestyle," it is made politically correct. It is even blessed by the new American religious spirit. Sodomy is a test for being properly "tolerant."
Read Deuteronomy chapter 28 for the story of the American spirit, past, present, and future, in just one chapter.

I don't know whether to cry or scream. I MUST tell you that the time for national repentance is PAST. I must tell you America is bound by the religious spirit. People like Bush, who claim to be Christians, and stick a knife in the back of Israel, is what will bring Romans 1:18 to pass in America SOON.
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

I am to tell you that PERSONAL repentance is all that is left. There will be no revivals. There will be FEW to be saved.
I am to tell you that:

Isa 3:10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Isa 3:11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. Isa 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. Isa 3:13 The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.
I am to say it will be well for the righteous. Are you righteous? By whose standards?

Religious liberals may mock. I say, rage on and fill up your cup. The Bible says their foot will slip in due time. Call me unpatriotic, ignorant, and judgmental. I did not write the Bible, but I KNOW Who did. The God, who cannot lie, in His Holy Bible, teaches these things are sins which MUST, inevitably, bring God's judgment upon a people. I will not suppress the truth of the Word of God. This is not a popularity contest, this is the Great God Contest of all time and eternal life, or eternal hell, hang in the balance of making the right choice. Choose ye this day whom ye will serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
Shalom & Simcha,
